Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 passes its MOT
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 August 2017, 8:00 am
I spent a few pleasant but troubled days with Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 [official site] just after launch, reporting that it was a great game saddled with significant technical and interface issues. Since that time, the developers have released approximately eight million and twelve patches (not to mention a feverish mea culpa for the game’s […]

As mega-hit Battle Royale ’em up Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds [official site] has chugged on through early access, it has mostly kept to its plan to release one big content update every month (one was a week late) and smaller tweaky fixy patches every week.

A new trailer for Destiny 2’s [official site] PC beta has arrived and like so much of the marketing, it’s nodding at all your PC’s most powerful components in a suggestive fashion: “With that kind of equipment, I can go full 4K with an uncapped framerate.” Even though the game itself is coming to PC […]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2017, 11:00 am
Here’s a little bit of bad news that’s followed by a large dose of good news for Arcfall fans. The team announced that it decided to move back the implementation of the game’s PvP system by two weeks. Bummer, right? Well, it’s actually because of an unexpectedly good thing. The team said that it’s been making such great progress on [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2017, 2:00 pm
Sinister clowns. Demon cows. Filthy spittoons. You know you’re intrigued already, but why stop at mere words when a world of western stick figures is available to play right now? West of Loathing, a western-themed spin-off of Kingdom of Loathing, launched this week on the PC. While the latter is a punny quasi-MMO, West of Loathing is a strictly single-player affair, [...]

Dead Maze shuffles into the crowded zombie survival gamespace
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2017, 6:00 pm
It’s been years since slapping zombies into your game was a novel attraction, yet it still remains a popular feature for players and developers alike. With The Walking Dead still generating water cooler discussions and geeks dreaming of that glorious post-apocalyptic fantasy, it is to be expected that more games take a stab (and a slice and a shot) at [...]

The Daily Grind: Are you a fan of Guild Wars 2’s non-traditional mounts?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2017, 8:00 am
Mounts are the big new thing in Guild Wars 2’s Path of Fire expansion, and as I’ve previously mentioned, I was initially concerned about their inclusion, given that traditional mounts would seem to necessitate a major revision of the game’s foundation. But of course, the new mounts aren’t traditional mounts; they seem more like toys to help players navigate parts [...]

Video games can grow or shrink your brain, study finds
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2017, 9:00 am
Does your brain feel a little lighter or heavier this week? It could be because of your gaming habits. A recent study on video games hosted by the University of Montreal took a group of people and subjected them to either first-person shooters or Super Mario Bros. It turns out that there was “statistically significant” less grey matter in the hippocampus [...]

Dota 2’s The International 7 tournament is over, having concluded this weekend by crowning EU group Team Liquid — which arrived to the finals by way of the loser’s bracket — champions.

Black Desert offers NA players a compensation package for emergency maintenance
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2017, 10:00 am
Good news for Black Desert players in North America, you got some free compensation! The bad news is that it’s to make up for emergency maintenance on the game; the good news again is that you probably were not playing at the time? It’s a multi-faceted situation, that’s what we’re getting at here. While the official sources seem oddly reluctant [...]
